    The audience layout is wierd, but the sound is pretty good. Beer is expensive. It literally took me 2 hours to leave the parking lot after the Blink 182 show in July.

    It's 101°. Why aren't the fans blowing full blast above the covered seating?? It's stagnant heat. Terrible. Come on Gexa. You can do better. We're having heat stroke!.

    Outside the pavilion only 24 oz $13 beers. Inside 16 oz $9.50 beers from the "hawkers." The smaller beer a preferred option for some.

    Then they have to ask a senior person what to do. They have no clue other than to say go back for. The direction you came from there will be a sign. There was not a single sign anywhere.

    You go the the pan am gate and attempt to enter. They tell you to go to the ticket booth. You go to the ticket booth and wait for 25 minutes to be told to take the ticket to the gate.

    Off to a bad start. You park at the fair park parking lot. You ask directions of the first state fair employee you see. He tells you that you have to enter the fair to get in to gexa.

    Lawn is navigable with a small group, but you'll still want to get there pretty early. Also bring cash for the beer hawkers, don't want to miss any tunes.

    Buy lawn seats! They are cheaper, it's hot under the regular seat section, you can bring a blanket, take off your shoes and dance like a free love child all night. It's the way to go!

    Came to see Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love. Great venue but because of "thunderstorms" which never came, the show was canceled before Lana even came on. How disappointing.

    Featuring abundant free parking and a central locale, Gexa Energy Pavilion has become the default outdoor venue for most major concerts coming through the area.

    Great place to see a show! But of course in Texas the summers are supper hot so be prepared to buy lots of expensive water or drink water from the creepy water fountains near the bathrooms.

    This place is awful and outdated. The sound was hard to hear. The visuals, old fashioned. I want Fair Park to be used but this is not acceptable. Will not be back.
